Unwanted depressive thoughts!!!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had GAD and depersonalisation disorder 24/7 for over 11 years I get depressed a few times a year which last around a week because I don't sit around and mope I do stuff and surround myself with people (even though it just want to crawl into bed and die!) anyway I keep having these thoughts that are getting me down like what's the point in living(I would never ever kill myself there not like suicidal thoughts it's just like what's the point in anything!) what's the point on being on this planet and what's the point in shaving my legs! My thoughts are getting me down! I'm on anti depressants it's just having depersonalisation gets me really down sometimes I just want to see the world like most people do!

    Existensial questions are common in depersonalization. Because it feels like you don't even exist. The one thing that helped me through this was accepting that you can't control your thoughts, only what you think about. If you feel like you're going crazy then think crazy thoughts. Think about everything you're afraid of because the resitance in your giving your thoughts is a huge part where the depersonalization stems from. I refused meds and beat it without them. As impossible as it seems and how scary it is to accept you will beat it, not just by telling yourself you can, but by believing you can.

    I also have intrusive thoughts and they get really powerful at times, seeing a psychologist because don't want to be on meds, try to practise mindfulness, concentrate on the present and try to distract from negative thoughts by doing other things, and also self coach by talking to yourself that negative thoughts are just that, thoughts, and they have no bearing on reality. And try exposure therapy too, doing what makes you anxious, hope you feel better soon
